How rich is Queen Elizabeth II and where she gets her cash from

Queen Elizabeth II as per Celebrity Net Worth is worth just a fraction of  the crown's worth at $600 million

How large is the royal treasure, and what is the queen really worth? That is a million or rather billion dollar question, as per Forbes 'The Crown' through the the Firm (which actually goes by “Monarchy PLC”), holds nearly $28 billion in assets. The Crown Estate however technically belongs to the reigning monarch not the queen personally, how rich is the queen then and how does she get her money?

Queen Elizabeth II as per Celebrity Net Worth is worth just a fraction of the crown's worth at $600 million. And believe it or not the queen is paid an allowance. As per documents released by the UK govt, Queen Elizabeth II was given 86.3 million pounds for 2020 and it is labelled as the Sovereign Grant.

So who really pays the bill for this pocket money ? As per reports the average tax payer in the United Kingdom contributes just 1.29 pounds towards the royal kitty. This is pittance compared to what the royal family gives up in earnings as it forgoes revenues from key real estate across England including all of Regent Street, UK seashores and even tourist spots such as The Tower of London.
